The Vancouver Frontrunners Board would like to wish our members, friends, sponsors and community partners both in Vancouver and further afield a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

We’ll be meeting as normal throughout the holiday period (including Christmas Day and New Year’s Day).

Wednesday’s Run – Solidarity with those affected by the Boston Marathon explosions

by vanfrontrunners

Yesterday (Monday 15th April) one of our members, Mark Rozenberg, ran the 117th Boston Marathon. Mark completed the marathon in 3:48:02. Mark crossed the finish line shortly before the explosions and was not hurt. A big congratulations to Mark for qualifying and completing this prestigious event.

We will be running and walking tomorrow (Weds 17th April) at the usual time from the Roundhouse at 6:25 PM. In memory of the victims from Boston, we will be having a moment of silence in tribute to those affected by the explosions before commencing the run and walk. We are asking that you wear a shirt from your favourite race (such as the Sun Run, the BMO Marathon, Pride Run & Walk) as a sign of solidarity with other runners and walkers throughout the world. While some of us may choose to take a pause and reflect on the tragic events, let us also use this opportunity to show the world our resilience in being able to use sport to better ourselves and build community.

We would also like to take a picture of our group and send it to our sister club, Boston Frontrunners, as a symbol of our support for the running community in Boston. They hosted a number of activities for Frontrunners from around the world who ran in the marathon including our own Mark Rosenberg.

We very much encourage you to come out and run or walk with us tomorrow. As is our tradition we will be dining afterwards. This week the dinner is at Score Bistro. Come join us, even if you can’t make the run or walk.

Spring is here!

It was great to see everyone who came out for our run and walks this week – the weather was awesome!

Thanks to our resident coach, Cindy, who led a track workout for runners on the Saturday. Once again, the session was very popular! There has been a demand to start posting sessions on our website for those following programs. Stay tuned for more details. Any questions, please contact us.

You can still register for one of the world’s largest 10 K Races. Let us know if you do a late registration and want to be placed on the Vancouver Frontrunners team. We will be hosting a pre-race pasta dinner on April 20. More details will be in the weekly newsletter sent to members.

There’s also the Underwear Affair taking place on July 6th. A few our members are putting together a team. Consider joining the team that came in first place in the costume category last year! Registration details are in the newsletter or contact us for more info.

Our regular Wednesday and Saturday runs and walks continue throughout the spring and summer. Come and join us and enjoy the great weather!
